Great compact foundation
This foundation is great and leaves the skin with a flawless finish. Easy to apply in this format and is great for travel and topping up easily as opposed to liquid. Worth it!

Great coverage!
Great coverage for a powder foundation, expensive but good
  1. Great compact foundation

    This foundation is great and leaves the skin with a flawless finish. Easy to apply in this format and is great for travel and topping up easily as opposed to liquid. Worth it!
  2. Great coverage

    Great coverage for powder foundation, over liquid foundation or even on its own!
  3. excellent

    this foundation is amazing! It blends so easily and leaves a flawless look on my skin! The coverage is perfect and it is so lightweight! I definitely recommend!
  4. Go-to powder foundation

    Great to set foundation but I also love to use it on 'no makeup' days. Excellent coverage for a powder and non-drying,
  5. Would repurchase

    I use this every day as a setting foundation. It’s has a lovely buildable coverage but I find if I use it alone it clings to any dry areas.using as a setting foundation it lasts really well and helps to build that flawless face. I used to love the bare minerals compressed powder before they changed the formula and I think this works just as good.
  6. great for setting the face

    this foundation is better used to set the face and add extra coverage than using it alone. lasts forever and prolongs makeup wear
  7. My go to foundation

    I have been using it from last 4 years..never had any issue with it..not too dry for my combination skin..too good for my asian skin..always get compliments for no make up look
  8. Great coverage

    Very good coverage for my acne..non streaking n truly matches to my skin tone.
  9. lovely

    i wanted this to provide extra coverage to cover my acne and it did just that, didnt make my makeup look cakey either
  10. Great powder and extra coverage

    Love my MAC products, and this one definitely doesnt dissapoint!
  11. High coverage

    Great to touch up foundation during the day. Provides high coverage and sets foundation without drying it out. Lasts a long time
  12. Great coverage

    Food coverage powder, i use this over foundation to add extra coverage plus it helps to keep my face matte all day
  13. Good

    I use this to touch up my foundation throughout the day. It absorbs all the excess oil on my face and gives me a smooth finish
  14. Awesome

    good coverage doesn't unsettle the foundation or whatever is underneath
  15. LOVE IT

    love it so much worth getting doesnt dry skin out too much
  16. Great coverage!

    Works really well with the studio fix foundation! The colours match really well too. I can get quite an oily skin and this works perfectly to set my foundation and keep it looking great the whole day
  17. LOVE IT

    this is so good and goes over my liquid foundation perfectly and doesn't dry out my face
  18. Love this product

    I love this product, have been using it for a number of years, perfect cover
  19. On the go

    I use this for touch ups during the day and it works perfectly. Great coverage foundation.
  20. My number 1 powder foundation!

    I'm 29 now and have been using this powder since I was 18. It is amazing on it's own, The coverage is buildable full coverage. I like using this on it's own when I CBF doing full glam or I use this to set my foundation/concealer and also to touch up my oilyness throughout the night thanks to it's matte finish. I can't speak highly enough of this,
  21. nice

    good for no makeup makeup days, adds colour and coverage without making it feel like you're wearing too much makeup
  22. Full coverage powder

    Have used this product for years and years and love it. I use this powder when I want a more matte finish. I use this over the top of my MAC studio fix fluid foundation when I want a full coverage look that will last all day/night. Have repurchased several times.
  23. Love it

    Similar to the studio fix liquid foundation, it is amazing.
    This product makes your skin super matte and also soft, it doesnt make your face cakey or anything like that.
    It is definitely worth the money. It gives me such a nice and even finished look. However it does make your face a bit flat, finished with blush or highlighter should do the trick :)
  24. Great for setting liquid foundation

    I use this powder after applying the Studio Fix Liquid Foundation and it works brilliantly to keep my foundation looking fresh all day! I've been using it for years, and keep going back for more each time I run out. I like my make up to be full coverage and don't like to reapply during the day/night so this is perfect!
  25. Full coverage

    Love this powder for a night out as it is full coverage. Looks super matte. Texture is fine.
  26. Its alright

    It's a nice powder keeps my makeup set and matte which is good because I have combination skin but does kind of cling to dry spots. Might need to moisturize well before. I got a shade a little too light, need to get foundations shade match
  27. Go to powder

    This has always been my favourite powder it’s so long lasting and just sets so well on my skin.
  28. Great coverage!

    Great coverage for a powder foundation, expensive but good
  29. Great coverage!

    This compact foundation has lasted me ages! great coverage!
  30. Pricey but good product

    Good coverage for a powder foundation. Comes in a great range of shades to suit most skin tones. Packaging is study and comes with a good sized mirror. I didn't have any issues with this product however I don't know if I would repurchase due to the price point.
  31. Great powder!

    Last for ages, increases the staying powder of your foundation and applies really nicely. I never felt it was too cakey and its great on its own or paired with a foundation
  32. Best powder foundation

    i just bought a new one of this powder. It reminds me again how good it is and i cannot stop using it. it is so perfect for everyday use or even for glam use.
  33. Great powder keeps makeup on longer!

    i use this everyday! keeps foundation into place!
  34. holy grail

    I dont think I will ever get sick of this powder, love it! its worth the price as it lasts a long time and a little truly does go a long way, also kuddos to MAC for the colour selection
  35. Not bad

    This has a really good coverage to it, and is totally buildable as well! For me I find it can be drying on my skin on it's own, I definitely find it works better for me on top of a light liquid foundation. Would reccomend though
  36. Love this!!

    I love this powder! I use it over the top of the studio fix fluid as I love a full coverage look and this product is great!! Have purchased over and over again
  37. Ny new go-to powder!

    I used to use Clinique Stay Matte powders but they never matched my skin tone. I decided to purchase this after reading reviews and WOW I have been missing out! I’ve never been able to use powder without applying liquid foundation first, but MAC has changed that! I used this powder without liquid foundation for about 12 hours and the only thing required was a touch up on my nose area after 5 hours. Have recommended this product to everyone since the first day I used it!
  38. Only Powder You Need

    I have been using this powder both for on top of my foundation and just on its own for years. It gives you flawless, matte, long lasting, all day coverage - even after I work out at the gym, it stays put! It is perfect for holidays in the heat and warm climates (like QLD) as it is humidity proof.
  39. love it not cakey

    use in combination with or without foundation. with foundations makes a super full coverage makeup look minus the cakieness, also helps my foundation stay put and not move or feel oily. use without foundation and it makes a nice not too full coverage easy reddness remover for the quick on the go or light makeup day look
  40. The holy grail of compacts

    For years I used this as my only foundation, the coverage it gives is almost better than liquid. My skin doesn’t react to it and it really holds down the shine.
  41. Favourite powder

    I say this is my favourite powder but it’s actually the only one I’ve ever liked. It’s not drying, gives awesome coverage without being cakey, and on me it looks so natural. It lasts forever too.
  42. Love it

    I have been using this powder for years and have not been able to find a similar product. I use it ontop of my liquid foundation for a full coverage look or on its own for a light natural coverage. My acne scars are visible through it on its own.
  43. Excellent powder foundation

    Have owned this powder foundation and using it for years. It is great for full coverage look. I either use it alone as a foundation or sparingly for setting my liquid foundation. Recommend to people looking for a matte look.
  44. Great for a natural makeup look!

    Bought this and was surprised that the coverage is really good. I wear it on its own or to set a foundation for extra coverage. great for everyday use as it's not heavy and looks very natural. I'd say its more of like medium coverage coz my dark pigmentation still peeks through it. great for travelling and on the go moments as it is compact and comes with a mirror inside. what I do love about this too is that there's a separate compartment for the sponge that it comes with which is great if you don't like to remove the sponge and want to keep it for emergency sitch. overall satisfied with the product and highly recommend!
  45. Great for everyday makeup

    This powder looks good on its own. I will use this if i need to do a quick makeup and it last all day. It does look a bit powdery at first but it melts into your skin as the day goes by. So i swear by this powder!
  46. Beautiful, Buildable + Blendable

    Sets foundation gorgeously
    Wears on it's own beautifully for a ligther during the day coverage.
    Have given this to my sisters, friends, my partners daughter to borrow from time to time to show them how good it is because of how they always comment on how they like the look of my makeup & they loved it too.
    Lasts for a very long time, yes it is on the more expensive side but it is a very generous sized compact & lasts me atleast a few months at a time so I find it good value for money.
    LOVE IT!!
  47. Built to last

    i have repurchased this powder way too many times, I love its consistency and the range of colours on offer. Last all day and gives a matte finish
  48. Favourite

    Have used this powder for years, love that i can apply it in so many ways - if I'm wanting light or fuller coverage. I use this with the MAC Setting Spray and it lasts all day and gives a nice matte finish.
  49. The best!

    I love using this for when i need a bit of extra coverage when my skin is bad.. and for that it works so well! I've never tried it on the naked skin, only ever as a setting powder but i love it for that
  50. Great powder!

    I only use this powder on top of my foundation on special days, as I don’t want to put too many things on my skin all the tome! Leaves skin flawless. Not a huge MAC fan, but I love this powder and their ruby woo lipstick!
  51. Gorgeous result

    I prefer a matte look with my foundation but have found some powders make your skin look either dry, gray or too cakey.
    This powder provides a flawless finish and makes your skin look lovely and radiant.
    I find you can use this without a liquid base for a little bit of something on your face.
  52. Yes!

    This is such a great product. It can be used over foundation or literally on it's one for the make up cases.. you don't need a lot of it either!
  53. Airbrush Look!

    This is the best powder I have ever used. It is great to add an airbrush look on top of foundation but also sits really nicely on those 'no makeup' days as a bit of coverage. I have very oily skin and this has worked wonders.
  54. Second time purchase - won't ever change

    This is my second time purchasing this powder foundation, and I absolutely love it. My first purchase lasted easily 3 years as I just use a tiny bit to set in my liquid foundation. I have very oily skin and have never had any issues with this foundation moving. It looks natural and does not make you look 'dry', you can still go for a dewy look.
  55. Great Setting Powder

    This creates a great flawless finish. Recommended by my daughter and it's the best I've ever worn. Lasts all day. I am over 60 and it doesn't settle into fine lines like some. Love it!
  56. Using for 10 years

    This is the best powder on the market! I have used for 10+ years and it never fails. The best for setting your foundation or wearing on it’s own. You can build it up or just use for a light coverage over your moisturiser or primer. Take it everywhere with me and just about to purchase a new one.
  57. Full coverage

    I have been using this product for over 10 years now and will never change. Love the coverage and the way it works with the liquid foundation. They make a perfect pair. Lasts all day and never need to re-apply.
  58. Perfect powder foundation

    Love this product! Firstly, the MAC shade range is perfection, I’m NC10 and there are many other brands that I just can’t use for base products as they are just too orange on my skin. Love this powder for days off when I just can’t bring myself to slather goo on my face but still want to look better than no makeup. Also use this on top of a spf50 bb cream for a great medium to full coverage but natural looking base with sun protection. Buffs into the skin beautifully and melts in with your natural oils to give a nice satin finish.
  59. Overall okay

    I purchased this in addition with my MAC liquid foundation which was nice to have a colour match, although it was a bit too ‘cakey’ for me and seemed to settle in fine lines. I now keep this in my handbag for light touch ups on the go.
  60. very medicore

    not sure if i would ever buy this again because of the price
  61. Looks dewy after a while

    I wear this by itself, I don’t use it to set a foundation ( if I needed full coverage I would) but I find with my sigma F80 flat kabuki I stipple it on and then just dap a powder brush back into it and go back over it looks nice BUT the magic happens once it’s been on for a couple of hours. Stunning! For me (normal skin maybe a tad oily in the t-zone) it becomes so beautifully dewy, I look like I have glass skin! Love it.
  62. All time fav!

    i have repurchased this powder way too many times, I love its consistency and the range of colours on offer. Last all day and gives a matte finish
  63. Great coverage and long wearing

    Fantastic long wearing coverage. Easy to apply and a large range of colours. A great alternative to liquid foundation I have found, much easier to apply.
  64. Fav

    This is my favourite powder Foundation of all time. Long wearing considering my oily skin, great coverage and no cakeyness.
  65. My every day powder

    I have used this powder with both the Mac foundation & Estée Lauder and I love it for both. Great finishing powder I use every day. I love it also because it last for ages as well and never makes my skin go flakey or oily
  66. Good setting powder

    Used to use this daily as a stand-alone foundation. After trying other products, I've found this alone made me feel quite oily and the transfer was fairly bad. I still use this powder as a setting powder under my eyes and on my T-Zone and that works perfectly for me.
  67. Great for light coverage

    This foundation is great to either top up its liquid counterpart or to use as foundation on its own. It isn’t too heavy and provides great coverage, covering uneven skin tone, pimples and breakouts. Good staple to always have in your collection.
  68. Great coverage but cakey

    This foundation has good coverage but does not look natural at all, use in conjunction with mac fix plus and you will not regret it. It helps with the cakeiness
  69. Wouldn't wear studiofix without it

    This is an amazing set powder, it helps to control the t-zone section when applying my studio fix liquid foundation. Also works nicely with a few other foundations or even worn alone. Great for touch up's and on the go application
  70. Great powder

    High coverage and a great finish. Great for on the go touch ups.
  71. Used to be a favourite

    I have combination skin and this used to be a favourite powder foundation of mine. MAC makes them in a great variety of shades (in a slightly confusing shade name range - ie my shade is NC30 which is “Neutral Cool” but it’s actually for warm skin tones. AdoreBeauty has been really considerate in putting the description of the shade (Golden) in the product information). It has good medium coverage and it does the trick, however, I’ve since found better powder foundations that don’t look as powdery when applied to the skin.
  72. My Favorite Pressed Powder

    By far the best pressed powder I've used. Skin look flawless with out a cakey feel.
  73. Good

    I like the coverage and the way it sits on my skin but I have two problems with it. A) It tends to make me oily B) It transfers easy. Besudes that I really do like it
  74. Super high coverage

    I got the shade NC15 and it's slightly lighter than the Studio Fix liquid - but it worked out fine with a bit of extra bronzer. I have pretty red/blotchy skin that is very dry and it have loved this foundation! I definitely have to make sure my skin is exfoliated and moisturised, so there's no dry patches, but the extra effort is worth it for the coverage! Definitely recommend.
  75. High coverage

    High coverage powder, great for achieving a full coverage.
  76. Coverage and Longevity

    Love this powder for its instant coverage and longevity. I have normal to dry skin and after apply a spritz Fix+ all over just to diffuse the powdery finish and keep my hydrated.
  77. Too heavy for me but still good

    This product is great if you like a very "done" up face. It provides great coverage, is buildable (but does cake so be careful).
  78. Great coverage for day or night

    I have been using Studio Fix as my foundation for years now and love it.

    I have fair and uneven skin tone with a few light sun spots and freckles. So I like to have some coverage most days - without looking like I have a full face of make up. Studio fix has been great for my skin. On days when I just want light coverage, its perfect.

    For times when I want more coverage and want to wear a little more make up, I use a small amount of primer or serum on my skin so that Studio Fix is longer lasting and I can apply the powder more like an all over foundation. Its super easy to blend and it long lasting for big nights on the town.
  79. Pricey but worth it

    I work out doors and not allowed to wear makeup (but I do anyway) so instead of wearing liquid foundation I use this, and it last all day, it does melt off in some areas but I am sweating and working hard in the sun, so I’m amazed it stays on through that!
  80. Can't go wrong

    This is the BEST powder Foundation Ever!!
    It seems pricey but the size of the compact & how little you need to get fantastic coverage it is actually great value for money.
    Makes pores disappear, helps keep shine/oiliness at bay & lasts all day.
    Love the coverage of it with the lightweight feel.
    Is amazing with or without foundation/bb cream underneath.
    So happy AB have Mac available now, as I used to have to order from 2 places to get my skincare & makeup so this makes life so much easier!!
    U guys are the best.....don't ever change
  81. Love

    I use this daily over my studio fix foundation and love it, it really evens out the look and gives that buffered finish.
  82. the only powder foundation I own, for good reason

    This is such a beautiful powder foundation. It doesn’t cling to any dry patches of skin and doesn’t go cakey throughout the day. The coverage is really good and it can be built up if desired. The colour match is also great. Definitely recommend this!
  83. Great every day

    I use this product as my every day foundation instead of a cream foundation . Gives great coverage but feels light on the skin
    For evening or going out I prefer a cream foundation and apply the Mac lightly over the top to eliminate oil
  84. Believe the Hype

    I use this almost everyday. It doesn't clog my pores, doesn't cake and feels nice on my sensitive skin. It doesn't stay matte all day, but then mostly nothing does for me. I apply it with a powder brush and use the sponge in the compact for touch ups during the day which helps with oily skin.
  85. Did not live up to the hype

    I bought this because it's always said to be such a HG powder foundation especially for oilier complexions. As a combination girl this sounded fine to me as I don't think I am exceedingly oily.
    Unfortunately, I cannot see the appeal. No matter what base I use this turns me into an oil slick.
    Alone on bare skin, I will be proper oily within 2-3 hours. On top of a primer, again 2-3 hours. On top of my most mattifying primer, 5 hours which doesn't seem bad but this primer keeps me matte until I wash it off. I really gave this a fair shot and even found on top of liquid foundations it would encourage unnecessary oil production.
    I am so disappointed because of how much it was and have passed it on to someone else. Would personally not recommend.
  86. My go to

    Great powder foundation - awesome coverage, good on its own or over a stick or liquid foundation (depending on the coverage you want). Great for touch ups too. Works well with my oily skin.
  87. My go to!

    This powder foundation is my go to in my make up collection! It always lasts, has great coverage and helps to mattify my skin! Would definitely reccomend.
  88. Great for Full Coverage!

    I love to use this powder for a full coverage look. It applies easily and stays put all day long and makes the staying power of my foundation when used over the top, stay in place even longer than without it! A great staple in my make up kit!
  89. Best coverage!

    I have been using studio Fix Powder for years. There have been times where I have strayed and decided to try something new - each time I regret it. Studio fix is long lasting and easy to build. Stays on all day with minimal shine!
  90. Nice option for oily skin

    Great for oily skin, I have used this alone and over liquid foundation - both worked great. The powder is also great for touchups. To avoid looking really powdery, I always follow with MAC fix+ to freshen up and give back a bit of moisture to look more natural.
  91. Amazing

    A staple in my makeup routine, provides full coverage and sets my makeup in place all day!
  92. Pretty good

    This is a good powder as far as they go. Helps my foundation sit nicer too.
  93. Didnt like it

    I didn't like this powder, i found it wore off very quickly and didnt provide full coverage over unless i really packed it on
  94. a great addition to prolong your makeup

    I have recently cut a fringe and with a relatively oily forehead, I find my fringe doesn't stay clean for long. A friend suggested a this powder and I managed to match it perfectly to my foundation so it adds no extra colour, just a matte finish and less shine that helps a great deal in the summer! My fringe lasts an extra day if I reapply powder in the afternoon.
  95. I love this powder

    I used to wear this over my studio foundation on nights out for extra coverage and it gave flawless looking skin that lasted without wearing off. took ages to hit pan as well. only took off a star because I wish it were CF
  96. I wanted to like this

    but I found it to be sticky/heavy feeling on the skin and provided only a light coverage. it also oxidised on my skin and went orange
  97. Surprisingly good

    I must say I have had issues with other MAC foundations (particularly in the summer heat). However this one has surprised me. Good coverage without looking cakey. Not as yellow as some of the other MAC foundations so suits my close to neutral skin. And feels nice on. Very happy!
  98. A very good powder foundation...

    This is an excellent product - doesn't cake and glides on really smoothly. Given how many other powder foundations there are out there and how expensive they are, this product is really a gem. I have skin that's prone to oil, especially in my T-Zone, but this has a great matte effect to tamp that down.
  99. such good coverage!

    This powder gives such full coverage and is long lasting. I don't find that it settles into lines or highlights any dry patches.
